5-star '100-percent' to Auburn
One of the top players in the country reiterated Sunday he would be signing with Auburn in February.
Olive Branch (Miss.) offensive lineman Shon Coleman said following an official visit to Auburn he doesn't have any doubts he'll sign with the Tigers on Signing Day.
"It's 100-percent," Coleman said. "I will sign with Auburn."
Coleman, ranked by Rivals.com as a five-star prospect and the No. 1 recruit in Mississippi, committed to Auburn in April. He said then he still planned to take visits. He's still considering taking other visits, but he'd be taking them "just to take them".
Ole Miss, Tennessee, USC and Miami are still in the mix. Coleman said he hasn't set a date for any, but would talk more about it in the coming days.
"I'm going to sit down with my coach and talk about it," he said.
Sunday, he wasn't thinking about any other schools. It was hard for him to coming off his visit to Auburn.
"It went good. I got to hang out with a lot of the players, the commitments," Coleman said. "It went really good."
Coleman was one of 11 commitments on campus for an official visit.
"I had a real good time with them, my future teammates," he said.
Coleman, who's player-host was receiver Travante Stallworth, was joined on the trip by his mother, sister and cousin. They all got to see first-hand what Auburn is like.
"Auburn is a family thing," he said. "Everybody is cool. You don't have any problems with anybody."
